We typically try to do at least one service project per year as a group to support our community, build community, and to instill in our students the importance of service.
This year we’re partnering with Share of Vancouver to provide event help for the Vancouver Couve Clover Run on March 22nd, 2020, from roughly 8:00 am -12:00 pm. We’re looking for students, staff, friends, and family who would like to serve in one of four possible ways. We are offering to help with packet pick up, general clean up, and in serving as “course marshals” who help direct race traffic. And we also have the option of doing service by volunteering to run on team Share and trying to raise money for them (free registration). We are looking to partner students with parent and staff volunteers so that all students will serve with an adult they/we know during this event. I’m told that all volunteers will receive a shirt, too, but I’ve yet to hear the final confirmation on that. Event info: https://whyracingevents.com/couve-clover-run/
If you think this might be something you, your parents, and friends might be interested in doing to help a local organization who helps to take care of some of our community’s most vulnerable members, then sign up here: https://forms.gle/5wmLj4yLjwgHMfk67
By the way, what does Share do in our community? “At Share, we provide a spectrum of services—from the Outreach team on the streets to emergency shelters and free nutritious meals, to the Backpack program feeding hungry children and subsidized housing for low-income individuals and families, to a matched savings program and permanent housing, and so much more.” https://www.sharevancouver.org/
What does Share get out of this? Share gets a donation from event partners when they reach their volunteer quota, so we’ll be able to help them out by being “their” volunteers for this event.
